On the Effect of Pipe Boundary Layer Growth on the Formation of a Laminar Vortex Ring Generated by a Piston/Cylinder Arrangement


The growth of a boundary layer at the nozzle wall during laminar vortex ring formation by a nozzle flow generator (piston/cylinder arrangement) is analysed theoretically and numerically and used for modelling the formation of real vortex rings. The predictions of the model are in good agreement with previous experimental and numerical results.
